We have been to Four Seasons Nevis on a company sponsored trip based on annual quota achievement. The property is great and we can see the Nevis Peak from it with clouds around it. We had planned the hike well in advance; mentally and physically, we were well prepared before we were in Nevis. We choose it do it on our own for the tough trek. We did not take a guide as we believed it from reviews that it's possible. The trek was really tiring. We could hardly stand or walk after we came down. You need a very high fitness level. Directions are not a big challenge. Out of the group of 6, 4 of them went back. It was only 2 of us who completed the trek. At some points, the trek is steep and there are ropes to climb. That's were you need gloves else skin of your hands would be peeled off. Carry enough water. If you are not confident, please use a guide. Don't forget to sign the book kept at the peak! The effort is all worth it when you see the view from the top.

It's hard to call it a hike! We booked through Nevis Adventure Tours and had Reggie as our guide. We're 60 years old and went with our adult children. They collectively found it amazing and were hardly challenged (within reason). My wife and I also loved it but we were more challenged. My wife on the way up and me on the way down; more to do with fear than anything else. Reggie tended to my wife dutifully on the way up, saw her confidence on the way down and transferred his attention to me. I don't do "down" well. All that said, the views were amazing and we are all glad we had done it. Some of us used gloves which I would highly recommend. Reggie is great if you can get him, very knowledgeable, very attentive, generally a good guy.

I am a 68 year old not so fit grandmother and I did it! The first part, about a third, is on gentle but steep paths through the the forest. Then there is a river gully and ropes and rocks and tree roots. A warning of things to come. I was scared. The next section is all woodland steep pathways with the tree roots providing foot and handholds. The ropes start to become more frequent as the pathways gets steeper. My son lives on Nevis and is a horticulturist so I got some brilliant stuff on species, habitat and special plant characteristics as a bonus. Later I wasn’t listening as I was either so tired or so scared or both. This stretch was muddy and steep. On the last third the gradient really jacked up and instead of tree roots it was mostly rocks and boulders. Nearly all the very steep parts had ropes to help the climb. There were quite a few 15 to 20 foot near verticals. Footholds in most places but the soil was clay and wet so slippy. I did the climb in running shoes as it’s all I had with me and I didn’t have gloves. It was fine and the running shoes gave flexibility. I swallowed my pride and just kept asking my son for stops. Take lots of water and energy food. My Fitbit showed 3000 plus calories. My son was great and kind and didn’t complain about the stops once. It’s me and my stubborn pride and competitiveness that’s the problem not him! Anyway just when i thought it was never going to end. It did. The summit is small. The footprint of my spare bedroom. It was cloudy so no view. There is a box there as others have described but the book inside was wet and spoiled. Note for someone to get a replacement? I’m not doing this again. Don’t want to push my luck. There is a second summit, the higher one with the trig point. My son went off and did that and it took him 40 mins. He said it was overgrown and therefore a bit dangerous as the drops on the edge of the path weren’t visible. I think the journey back down was worse than the way up in many ways. My legs were tired which makes it dangerous and we took a different turn low down so had a hike to the car along the road. Well he did. I sat at Poor Mans Bar and had a cold Guinness!

46 year old father of 2 teenagers, lawyer, thinks he is still young embarks on the climb. Hard, dirty, and just like playing in the woods used to be. Really slippery because it is soaking wet all of the time. Saw great nature and feel great. Recommend this, but there is no one in my current friend group who would have enjoyed doing this.

First time on the island for my wife and I, went with another couple and thoroughly enjoyed it. The whole time I was there the peak was calling to me to climb it! (And it is a climb, not a hike). But we had other activities planned most mornings and couldn’t find a day to go as the hike only is offered at 7:30 AM Mon - Sat...but I managed to get away the AM that we left. Ferry left at 2pm which gave just enough time to get up and down! Sooo worth the early wake up. Booked through the Four seasons for $40 each. I would recommend a guide and Gaylis (?) was our guide and was great. Left 4 seasons at 7AM and returned at noon. If you have a larger group or some that are not fit the hike could take substantially longer. We were up in 1:45 down in 1:30. Few tips: bring lots of water, seems intuitive but some in our group got sent back due to not having enough water. Use gloves! There was a house on the road to the trailhead that sold them for $5 (US) but that may not always be the case. Your shoes will get soaked in mud and you will be drenched in sweat! Dress accordingly. Enjoy!!!
